Summer 2021 Updates:
Sky Ranch is blessed to be in a position to offer summer camp, weekend retreats, and Fall programming this year! Continued thanks to all who worked tirelessly to protect our beloved camp from the Cameron Peak Fire and those in healthcare who have ensured we are well informed and ready with protocols to Facilitate a safe encounter with Christ on the Mountaintops!
Our top priority at Sky Ranch is the safety and well being of all who join us this summer. Due to the geographic diversity of our campers and guests these policies are based on guidance from local health officials and may vary from your respective community. These policies are in no way a final draft and will continue to be updated based on recommendations from appropriate health agencies and organizations.

Firefighters continue to respond to the Cameron Peak Fire, which began on August 13. The fire is currently 127,398 acres and is 42 percent contained. Windy and dry conditions fueled the fire on Monday, October 5, and the fire crossed a containment line on the north side. In total, at least 95 structures have been destroyed in the fire, including three primary residences.
Winds Tested the Containment Lines yesterday on the Cameron Peak Fire. Most of the containment lines held Monday during the Red Flag wind event. Near Sky Ranch, large air tankers and helicopters worked with firefighters to hold the fire above Comanche Reservoir. Additional resources and personnel have been directed into the area today. While the winds will likely decrease today, fuels remain critically dry and firefighters will continue to experience active fire behavior.
Thank you for your prayers and support! Please continue to pray for all those affected and fighting the fires in Colorado and across the West.
